Summary Since 1996, six American states have voted in legislation to castrate sex offenders, either physically or chemically. Is it treatment, or punishment? Or is it both? Castration has been tried many times in Europe and the United States over the past century. In the present experiment, states are trying to save money. To reduce prison bills, castrated rapists and pedophiles are being released back into the community. Will the public be safe? Many doctors, rape survivors and prosecutors think not. If rapists are motivated more by power than sex, then castration may lead them to commit even more violent sexual assaults, including mutilation and murder. This uncompromising documentary takes a tough look at a tough subject. Member of a series: Eye for Justice (Series)
